It’s been way too long between posts so here’s an update on the latest theme and design choices for the main Spiderweb site. Long time customers may notice the site is no longer using the Elementor page builder with purple highlights and animations.
Microsoft will stop providing updates for Windows 7 on January 14th 2020. If you are using this version of Windows then you do have a few choices such as disabling future updates altogether, upgrade to Windows 10 or consider switching to Linux.
Cloudflare is an “Integrated Global Cloud Platform” that helps to increase the security and speed of your website. It stores the content of a website on its ~200 edge servers around the world so end users will get a quicker page load no matter where they are located.
It’s been quite some time since our previous posting but now that we have recovered from the “big mail server transition” we finally found some time to create a new website design. We’re now using the excellent Elementor Page Builder plugin.
Many thanks to Mick Dale for preserving a copy of the very first set of website pages from the beginning of Spiderweb in the late 90’s into the early 2000’s. Does anyone remember seeing “the bug” being driven around Gympie in the early 2000s?
The mail server transition is mostly complete now except that quite a few users with old outgoing mailserver settings of unencrypted port 587 (and port 25) still can’t send out email. Please update your outgoing mail settings to port 465 with SSL.
We now provide WordPress as the default web interface so for the last year we are a WordPress hosting provider rather than a generic website provider. Most customers want WordPress anyway so we just install it by default.
Spiderweb is in the process of transitioning to a new cloud based server and billing system over the next few months. The new industry standard billing system will introduce some changes to the way we interact with you via email.
